Adding User Permissions

Like many other features in TikiWiki, the Screencasts feature utilizes tiki's permission system to govern what user groups can upload screencasts to SUMO. Setting the "tiki_p_upload_screencast" permission is just like setting any other permission.

  • Visit the admin groups page
  • Click the "Permissions" icon for the group you'd like to add the permission to
  • Scroll down the list of available permissions until you find the "tiki_p_upload_screencast" and make sure it's selected
  • Click 'Update' to save
